This Weekend: Silver Tongued

The Silver Ages from Nate Johnson on Vimeo.

FRIDAY:

>>> Hype-endorsed pop singer Jessie Ware is performing at Union Transfer, with support from Rochelle Jordan in an all-ages extravaganza.
>>> Att. Procrastinators: The Birdie Busch and The Greatest Night’s Philly Opry at Johnny Brenda’s is all but sold out. Quit sleepin’ on it and get your tickets in advance.
>>> If you’re a fan of international guitarists and taking short drives to your destination, this one’s for you: It’s International Guitar Night at the Sellersville Theater.
>>> Moz is in Reading, we won’t be there, and we’re not salty about it at all. AT ALL.
>>> Hometown dudes G.Love and Special Sauce are playing the TLA.
>>> If you want some good old fashioned laffs, Wyatt Cenac will be telling jokes at The Troc.
>>> And World Cafe Live’s got a double-dose of David Lowery, as both Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven play.

SATURDAY:

>>> Jersey-bound Banjo-hounds take note: Bela Fleck and six other banjoists will be having a banjo-jamboree (ban-jamboree?) way out in Princeton
>>> On the opposite side of the strumming scale, Converge and Pig Destroyer are playing, loudly, at Union Transfer.
>>> The Silver Ages Holiday Performance we hyped up a little while ago is totally sold-out, though we haven’t checked the going rate on StubHub.
>>> And it’s a Saturday and Sunday double-header of Monty Python’s Spamalot at the Merriam Theater

SUNDAY:

>>> XPN welcomes folker Erin McKeown to Johnny Brendas’s where she’ll play tracks off of her new record, MANIFESTRA, supported by Jenn Grant.
>>> PhilaMOCA‘s got another edition of Naked Girls Reading, for all of those people who love … uh … books. Yeah, books. Oh, and they’ll be reading Sci-Fi.
>>> Hey, relax, lounge, and enjoy your (probably) three-day weekend. We’ll see ya Monday.
